A good photographic practice is to go out on an outing with only one lens. That’s what I did recently with a couple of photo buddies. Since I recently did a post for Lens-Artists on Macro, I thought I should take some macro photos.
That’s how we ended up at Thompson Building Materials and Nursery in Sacramento. This is mainly a commercial business. They had a large amount of outdoor statues and other ornamental items. With my 80 mm prime lens was slightly restricted, I had to move back (get a wider angle with my feet) or get a partial of the item. A macro lens can be used for other types of photography!
Now for the flowers. Some of these may be from Green Acres Nursery also in Sacramento. Being more of a residential nursery they had more flowers. So the following is a mixture from both businesses.
I do love macro/close up photography. Take care everyone!

Wow, I absolutely love your flower macros! They look so delicate and full of beauty!
Thanks! I liked your butterfly too.
I love these, both the statuary and the flowers – a super set of images!
Thank you Sarah!
Macro lenses are so much fun to use – close up and distance. They make great portrait lenses if 60mm + too I think. Nice portraits of things and flowers!
I agree -N! I love my macro lens.
